Torix and Constantine
Brigadier Hermann Machtblitz
Supervisor of the Checkpoint Between Osk and Zaitsag
Brigadier Machtblitz was a very large human. He was the flattering kind of large because he had big muscles and was tall. He spoke with a ridiculous accent. When Mara and TnC got out of their steam wagon, Machtblitz took them aside because he was told that they were the leaders of the troupe. He asked the usual questions about Bernard and the great port city of Kallipolis. After he understood that Mara and TnC were on a mission of diplomacy, he told them that he knew something that would make the Kaiser of Hommeland talk peace with Kallipolis. He pulled out an updated wanted poster of Torix and Constantine, and noticed the resemblance immediately. He may have figured out that he was looking at TnC, so he said something about them having to pay him to keep this to himself. Mara and TnC were glad that he was smart enough not to challenge them physically, so they turned the tables on him. They said that if he disrespected them by comparing them to "butchers", they would make sure to file a formal complaint with his superiors to make sure he faced serious penalty. Mara and TnC were convincing enough for him to back down. They gave him a flag to fly below the flags of Dverzistan and Hommeland, and he chose to respect them. They left the checkpoint laughing to themselves.
